Jagannath Temple Photo Gallery

Puri is one of the four "dhamas" on holy places of India, the other three being Badrinath. Dwarika and Rameswaram. Located at   a distance of 60 km. from Bhubaneswar the temple of Puri is called the temple of Sri Jagannath, the Lord of the Universe with whom Lord Balaram and Subhadra are also worshipped. Built over years [1135 A. D.- 1198 A.D.] the temple stands in the heart of the Puri town with Bay of Bengal with its expansive and pleasant sea beach to the south east at a distance of nearly one km. from the temple. The height of the temple is 65 meters with a fort like compound which epitomizes the Kalinga architecture. The holy kitchen of the temple prepares Mahaprasad (holy food for the deities) for at least 10,000 people everyday. The Ratha Yatra (car festival) is the spectacular festival held in the month of July when the three deities Balaram. Subhadra and Jagannath majestically wheen down the broad path- in huge and beautifully caprisioned multiwheeled chariots to another temple 3 kms. away and after nine days the return journey is made. The beaches of Puri are yet absorbing to note. Lace on vast stretches of silver ..... soak in the sun ........... relax under warm clear blue tropical skies. Here you can surf-ride or swim or just watch the fishermen draw their nets in.
